I played with the Sony app for a bit. It's not bad but I won't be switching right away. NOTE: it is only available in the US iTunes store. You need a US account to download it.

Pros:
- Can sideload EPUBs
- Very customizable reading settings (margins, text size, dozens of fonts, dozens of text and background colours, 5 page turning animations)
- Swipe up and down for brightness control
- Can copy text, or share selections via email and Twitter

Cons:
- No offline dictionary (uses Google search)
- No one-tap in-line definitions
- No Wikipedia integration
- No quick highlighting
- The 'slide' animation is quite jarring
- The 'flip' animation is not very elegant
- Bookmarking requires two taps
- No progress indicator in library view
